I think you have a lot of potential with this shot, but the strong magenta cast and the super strong saturation really mask the natural beauty of this scene and your composition. There really isn't any reason for the shot to be so red at night. My guess is that you tweaked the WB and the color heavy handedly to try and give it the same sort of color that it might have during the day with reflected light --- but that just isn't true to a scene like this. Rather than coming across as a wonderful night shot...Show more →
Thank You Ben,
Yes, I changed white balance in camera, or as you call it manipulated it a bid, and I don't deny it. In fact, I like your advice and I will reprocess this images differently. But just so you know the first thing you hear when taking a photography tours in Page (I took a few, not only to Antelope Canyon but also to Canyon X for example, which has its own beauty) is to adjust your WB. So almost all photographers do this. You will not get such intense reds, or blues, or magentas etc. unless you manipulate your image either in camera or PP. There's no way. I assume what bothers you a bit is that it's maybe too red for you. I can always adjust that.
Anyway, thanks. Good write up.
